Fools have no interest in understanding; they only want to air their own opinions.
Doing wrong leads to disgrace, and scandalous behavior brings contempt.
Wise words are like deep waters; wisdom flows from the wise like a bubbling brook.
It is not right to acquit the guilty or deny justice to the innocent.
Fools’ words get them into constant quarrels; they are asking for a beating.
The mouths of fools are their ruin; they trap themselves with their lips.
Rumors are dainty morsels that sink deep into one’s heart.
A lazy person is as bad as someone who destroys things.
The name of the is a strong fortress; the godly run to him and are safe.
The rich think of their wealth as a strong defense; they imagine it to be a high wall of safety.
Haughtiness goes before destruction; humility precedes honor.
